The End or the Beginning?

“Every Beginning has an end, every end had a beginning.”  It’s a funny quote that can lead to some deep thought if you let it.  It’s sad sometimes when things come to an end.  There are a lot of things we don’t like to see end, yet everything in life has a beginning and an… Read More ›

Facing Fears

I faced another fear today.  You see, I used to have a major fear of getting up in front of people.  When I was growing up I was forced to sing solo many times in church.  I hated that.  I have the kind of singing voice that goes well with a duet or choir, but solo’s… Read More ›

“Failure is not necessarily at the end of the road.  Many times it is the beginning of a new and more exciting trip.” – Zig Ziglar

Let’s Do This!

Those who really want to accomplish something will find a way; those who are not committed will find an excuse. When you make excuses about why things didn’t get done, or create obstacles to use as an excuse to give up on that project, diet, or exercise routine the only person you are really hurting is… Read More ›

Pity Party Extravaganza!

I threw myself a pity party the other day.  I tried to invite some friends, but they weren’t really buying into it.  I had the sad music on, whined and sulked and sat in the dark.  What the heck I was doing?   So what is the purpose of a pity party?  For the life of me… Read More ›

Start Something Right Now!

The news of the Connecticut shootings made me angry, then heartbroken.  I cannot begin to imagine the pain the families of the victims are feeling, or the pain of the children that survived and have to deal with great loss so early in their lives.   I don’t believe we should ever mention the criminals in… Read More ›

I Don’t Feel So Merry

It’s Christmas time.  Yesterday we had snow, just a light dusting, and it was beautiful.  There is a chill in the wind today, it makes me want to stay home by the fire and drink hot cocoa.  I have been looking at Christmas decorations, but they don’t seem quiet as sparkly as they used too.  I… Read More ›

Be Accountable!

Today I am thankful for accountability.  Accountability plays a big part in our lives.  It’s a wonderful thing to have people who are accountable for their own choices and actions in life.  Those are the people who are not the one’s causing drama, pointing fingers, blaming others, and whining constantly because things aren’t the way… Read More ›

Choose Carefully!

Today I am thankful for the wide range of emotions we are blessed with.  Emotions can make our world pleasant, sad, angry, happy, content, or restless, depending on how we apply them.  My grandmother used to tell me a story that her grandmother told her.  It is an old Cherokee Legend that has been passed down through the… Read More ›

Yay, Teachers!!

Today I am thankful for teachers.  I think most people go through a period in their life where they dream about being a teacher.  I did.  I could picture myself in a room full of children, teaching them to read, do math, history and science.  I could see the decorated bulletin boards, the slide shows,… Read More ›
